Except where otherwise noted, the following pages are the words of Wayne Bent aka Michael Travesser, written over his last year, and during his incarceration, at the Penitentiary of New Mexico in Santa Fe. As of 2017, he is 76 years of age. The abridged version here now was compiled at home after his release from prison.

These pages include his point of view on his criminal case, something he is certainly entitled to share considering the unjust prison sentence he served over something that is entirely a matter of faith. But more than this, he expounds on the larger prophetic picture of which his legal case is only a part.

This legal case reaches far and wide and has affected many other people than just Mr. Bent.  His observation is that some people have unjustly died because of the state’s actions. There were many unintended consequences proceeding from his illegal incarceration of 2600 days, and the effects of those consequences extend far beyond their visible boundaries.

The various components of this website include the efforts of a number of individuals besides Mr. Bent who have transcribed audio recordings of phone calls from Mr. Bent while he was in prison, who have edited and rewritten portions of the text, translated it into Spanish, and who manage the website to make these pages and audio recordings freely available to the public. The point being is that these pages are not solely protected speech for Mr. Bent, but also for others who share in his experience.

It might also be noted, that the world is now suffering as Mr. Bent said that it would, because of his wrongful conviction and the professed Christians’ moral cowardice. What the world did to him, is now being done to them. The people attack each other now, especially in their politics, as they did to him. Mr. Bent stated that these things would occur. The chapters in this “Little Book” explain the events and the overall picture of this “time of judgment” and “the end of the world” that was prophesied so many years ago.
